Emmetsburg Arrest

An investigation by Palo Alto County authorities into a revolver reported stolen from a vehicle parked at the Emmetsburg campus of Iowa Lakes Community College has led to the arrest of a West Des Moines man.

Emmetsburg police say 19-year-old Ryan Day was arrested last Wednesday on two counts each of possession of stolen property and burglary. He was booked into jail pending an initial court appearance.

Authorities say the owner of a 22-gauge revolver reported it had been missing since early October. The theft was reported to police November eighth. Day was also charged with fifth-degree criminal mischief in connection with a tire slashing incident November fifth in the parking lot at the Emmetsburg campus of ILCC.
